DescriptionThis is an extensive look at one of New Jersey’s most memorable amusement parks, Hunt’s Pier. The paper will explore William C. Hunt’s innovative style of new and
changing rides and a large concentration of unique attractions which made his pier a must visit location for families on the Jersey Shore. It is through the examination of his rides and style that it becomes evident that Hunt’s legacy is more than just a collection of fond childhood memories, but a well deserved credit to his creativity, dedication, and innovativeness. The paper also debunks a common belief of Hunt’s copying Disney’s Disneyland, as it proves Hunt took only cues from his personal friend, Disney, and vice versa.
